ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. -

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she feels bad for the governor of Washington after this week's union vote on the Boeing 777X.

Haley, who has long opposed unions, says it's terrible when a company like Boeing is trying to work in a state and the union, as she put it, "comes in and kills it."

Haley has spoken to top company officials to assure them South Carolina supports the company. But she said it's too early to talk about whether South Carolina will try to draw up incentives to lure the 777X.

The machinists union in Washington state this week rejected a contract that would have kept the 777X work there. Other South Carolina lawmakers have said the union vote puts the state in the mix for the 777X.
